Once you have finished marking change the Marking workflow state using the drop down menu. The available options are:

  • In marking – the first marker has started marking
  • Marking completed – the first marker has finished marking
  • In review – the marking is now with the second marker
  • Ready for release – the second marker has finished marking but is waiting before giving students access to the marking (for example until all of the marking is complete)
  • Released – the students can access their grades and feedback

Click on the Save changes button at the bottom of the page to save your marks and comments. To move onto your next assignment click on the Assignment title link at the top left of the marking interface, click on the View all submissions link again and then choose your next assignment from the filtered assignment list.
